Ajay led a conflicted childhood and grew up causing plenty of trouble for himself and his mother. He eventually fell in with the wrong crowd and, during his teens, became caught up in a robbery gone wrong that resulted in a store clerk being shot to death. While Ajay was not directly responsible for the shooting, he turned himself in and bartered a deal with police - in exchange for no prison time, he provided the name of the person who pulled the trigger and joined the US Military.
As Ajay was turning his life around, he learned that his mother was dying of breast cancer. She never told him, and it had now metastasized into her liver, leaving him with a scant few days to say goodbye in the hospice. The last lucid conversation they had was about Kyrat. His mom described the beautiful place they left behind when he was a child and spoke of regrets for things left undone. A few weeks later during the reading of her will, Ajay was given her last wish, an amendment made a few days before she died: "Take my ashes to Kyrat, to Lakshmana". With a mix of guilt, apprehension, and a little excitement, Ajay has entered Kyrat by way of India to fulfill his mother’s final wish that was to spread her ashes.

When she and Pagan go away the guard drug's Ajay and he sees a Rakshasa, a Shangri-La demon, Ajay quickly make a Grapple and escapes from there, in front the prison he feels very cold and before passing out, he sees something big coming in his direction and he finally passes out.
Ajay wakes up and hears on a radio in his front, is Pagan talking he found him passed out and took Ajay to one Bell Tower on the North of Kyrat, he apologizes to Ajay and said he did not know that Yuma did that, then he reveals he spoke to Amita and Sabal about its location and says that the men of Yuma were going to the place of extraction, Ajay then do some favors for Pagan in exchange for improvements in the Extraction Point. But in one of that works he hears about an expedition who Yuma sent to the Lost Valley in the northern mountains of Kyrat to seek a relic that could grant immortality to whom possess it, Ajay, in order to try to destroy all of Yuma's opportunities to get hallucinogens (or something like that), he decides to go after this expedition, after defending his helicopter he gets into it and contacts Sabal and Amita, talking about the expedition and the relic.
After arriving in Lost Valley, the Ajay's helicopter falls and Ajay is knocked unconscious. After waking up again he hear screams of a horrified pilot, Sukhwinder, yelling that he is bailing out of the helicopter. Shortly after, Ajay Ghale slowly awakens to the sounds of what presumably is an interrogation between Sukhwinder and an unknown individual stating, that one of Pagan Min's men told him about an expedition from Yuma send to the valley looking for a "Relic". Promptly after the interrogation, Ajay decides to locate the pilot. However, part way through the search, he enters a shrine of sorts, and notices a pair of individuals that don't seem to be part of Yuma's soldiers. After killing the lot, he continues the search and eventually runs into a relay station. After getting spotted by more of the unknown soldiers, a fight commences for control of the station where Ajay is ultimately victorious. Upon entering the Relay Station, he notices a radio and manages to contact help.
After hearing about a coming storm, he stays put where he eventually hears another conversation on the radio. It refers to him as an "interloper" and another individual is heard saying that he must be killed before the start of a "ritual." Deciding to prepare for an all out assault, Ajay is able to successfully defend the relay station from the attackers.
The next morning, Ajay will receive a transmission from an individual, dubbed "Master Sandesh", claiming that he has taken Sukhwinder captive, and is preparing to kill him. When Ajay asks why he has decided to kill the pilot, Sandesh states that he wants to see Ajay, and judge him to see if he is fit for the eyes of "Yalung", but if he doesn't come, Sukhwinder will die. Ajay then heads over to another shrine, where he is attacked by more soldiers. Upon killing all of them, Ajay runs over to Sukhwinder to free him, only to be knocked out by Master Sandesh, saying that he will meet "Yalung", and will be judged.
Sometime later, Ajay awakens, and hears someone yelling (presumably Sukhwinder), and sees a larger figure snap the individual's neck, before the larger creature yells and runs off. Ajay then realizes he has lost all of his equipment, except his flashlight. While exploring the cave, Ajay prepares to climb a ledge, only to see a Yeti eating, to which the Yeti stares at him, and it runs off. Continuing his search, he comes across a grappling device, and proceeds to escape the cave. During his return to the relay station, Ajay also manages to retrieve his equipment from a camp, to which he manages to secure. Later on, Ajay then defends the relay station again from Sandesh's soldiers.
The next morning, Ajay will then receive another transmission from Sandesh, claiming that he has the honor of being fed to a Yeti. Master Sandesh then says he knew why Ajay came for the relic, and then says he cannot contact for help, as the signals are jammed, except for the channel he is on. Upon exiting the relay station, he hears a conversation between two soldiers, telling each other that a radio maintenance crew crashed their truck, to which the latter soldier saying that the other soldier should send another soldier out to check the radio jammers to see if they haven't frozen up. Ajay then decides to head to the crash site, and realizes that he has to disable the generators for the radio jammers, disabling two.
However, Ajay manages to obtain a wingsuit, and soared down to a small shrine, to which he encounters another Yeti. Upon killing the Yeti, orange mist starts to arise from the Yeti's body, only for it to vanish.
After destroying the last generator, Ajay returns to the Relay Station via the disciples truck, and prepares for another assault, as before. The next morning, Ajay attempts to call for help, though he doesn't receive any broadcast. However, Ajay hears two of the soldiers talking about explosives, and an unknown individual being drugged with an elixir, and being placed in an offering with other unknown captives. Ajay then ambushes a convoy, and then heads over to the prison to find the bomb maker, while trying not to trigger the alarm. Having killed a few of the prison guards, Ajay finds the bomb maker, named Digvijay, and manages to escort him out of the prison, all the while killing guards.
Returning to the relay station, Ajay has to face off against Sandesh's guards, who are now armed with explosives. Upon surviving another night, Ajay will hear Digvijay on the radio, claiming that he "cannot completely thank him for saving his life." Digvijay then tells Ajay that he has left homemade explosives at random coordinates, but, also tells him about the "Relic", and how the elixir "changes" human flesh. Ajay then proceeds to recover Digvijay's explosives, also managing to destroy the disciple's elixir supplies in the process. Having destroyed the elixir supplies Ajay takes a disciple's truck, and returns to the relay station, in which he defends the station for one last time.
Later on in the morning, Ajay finally manages to get in contact with Golden Path officials. However, when the officials say that Ajay has to destroy Yalung's Relic, Ajay then says he wants them to pick him up at the peak of Hajura'Amako Hatama, a mountain, and leaves the relay station. However, Ajay realizes that he needs an oxygen mask to proceed to the peak. After killing a disciple, and looting his body for the oxygen mask, Ajay continues up to the peak, killing a Yeti partway. Upon finding the Relic, Ajay fires at it, only for him to black out momentarily.
Quickly having awakened, Ajay turns around to see that the Relic is creating more Yetis to protect itself. Regardless, Ajay manages to destroy all the roots to the Relic, to which it explodes, knocking Ajay out. Later, Ajay struggles to get up, only to realize he has turned into a Yeti, and to his realization, screams, when a disembodied voice says: "Your path is with us, not against us. Awaken and walk beside us."
After Ajay allegedly turns into a yeti, he wakes up in bed of the Ghale Homestead with Amita or Sabal at his side, both iram say he fainted and found him before he froze to death.Thus continuing the game's main campaign. The relic gave Ajay illusions, and, in desperation, ran out of the cave where he was rescued, continuing the main story.

Personality and Traits Edit
Ajay Ghale is a quiet man of few words, always thinking about the right choice and the path you should take, thus making the player to create their own Ajay, for often Ajay found himself in difficult situations and near death, but always managed deal with them. He always tries to act in stealth and using knowledge, and always silent. His previous experience in the Army has made him a proficient parachutist and combat survivalist. His appearance may have been inspired by Sushant Singh Rajput, as his facial construction and appearance are very similar to Ajay. He's always wearing a blue jacket, blue jeans and blue sneakers, and, unlike Jason Brody, protagonist of the previous game, Ajay is rarely amused. He seems to have some experience with firearms and training with the Kukri, although far from perfect.

Grapple — A hook with a rope in which Ajay uses to climb to elevated locations.
Khukuri — A large blade Ajay uses to kill enemies stealthily.
Wingsuit — A glider-like costume equipped with a parachute. It is received by Willis in the middle of the campaign or can be purchased earlier on.

These will influence whether the player chooses to kill Pagan Min or spare him.

- Paul De Pleur - Car blown up for the torture and murders committed by him in the City of Pain.
- Noore Najjar - Shot in the head for the killing of soldiers in Shanath Arena.
- Amita - Shot in the torso or killed after the end of the campaign.
- Sabal - Shot in the head or killed after the end of the campaign.
- Pagan Min - Shot in the head or helicopter shot down for the oppression of Kyrat and murder of innocent lives.
- Some members of the Golden Path and Citizens of Kyrat (Cause Loss of Karma) - The game does not want the player to do it, but you have the choice.
- Ajay grows up without knowing anything about his father, Kyrat and the Golden Path, seeing that his mother never told him anything at home.
- Besides seeing him in King Min's Wisdom, the only time his face is seen in the entire game is when he and Pagan take a selfie and while playing as Hurk in co-op.
- The only time he screams in the entire game is when he is on fire.
- In Act One. Ajay states that he is "not a soldier". Meaning he's not a current serving member of any armed forces.
- Unlike Jason Brody, the previous game's protagonist, Ajay has combat experience due to his years serving in the US Army, fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as his experience as a street thug in his early life.
- He is the new king of Kyrat, according to Pagan.
- According to the site http://www.behindthename.com/name/ajay/submitted, the name Ajay means "invincible, unconquerable" and, in Sanskrit, "one who cannot be defeated".
- The people of Kyrat pronounce his name as "Ah-Jay Gal-E", while western NPCs say "Ay-Jay Gale". Ajay himself, having beein raised in the U.S., pronounces it as the latter.
- Ajay uses a 1911 in the cutscenes to make the choices to kill or leave their enemies alive.
- In the game, the Ajay tree skills is divided into Tiger and Elephant, a reference to Amita and Sabal.
- In the game, Ajay can relive Shangri-la, an ancient myth in Kyrat. There he becomes Kalinag, the ancient hero of Kyrat on a mission to free Shangri-La from the demon Rakshasa.
- Ajay is the first protagonist who is a native of the region.
- Before Ajay went to Kyrat, he was a tourist in Patna, India, as it can be heard in the introduction where a man named Chet Peterson calls to Ajay that he bought tourist tickets to India with an additional trip to Kyrat.
- Ajay Ghale, Takkar and Jack Carver are the only protagonists who can't die at the end, regardless of the player's choice, as Jason Brody can be killed by Citra and in Far Cry 2 the protagonist that the player chooses dies.
- In Far Cry 3 events, Ajay Ghale was 24 and Jason was 25.
- While in the current game Ajay uses matches to cauterize his wounds (in the healing animation played when no syringes are available), in some earlier builds of the game we saw him instead use a lighter. It is unknown why this change was made.
